To really understand the Internet of Things (IoT) requires application, implementation, and execution in the real world. IEEE IoT recently launched a program to provide the IoT community an interactive platform on which to engage with use cases, service descriptions, business models, and reference implementations that will be key to developing a vibrant IoT industry. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to contribute to the IoT cause, as well as get excellent exposure for your projects and ideas.

Maria is jogging late in the afternoon at Vasaparken when she notices that one of the lamps in the middle of the park is out of order, thus creating a rather bleak spot in her jogging path. Using an app on her phone she points towards the lamp, takes a geo tagged picture, and submits it to the local authorities reporting the incident. Maria can report this by authenticating herself into the system and thus earn points that can be redeemed in the local market or she can report this anonymously. Turning this scenario around, viewed from the local authorities perspective, such maintenance activities can be automated by taking into consideration the lifetime of each lamp. A simple predictive mechanism can use this information as input and prepare a lamp for the preventive maintenance of a lamp grid installation.
